EATON, Kenneth James - Passed away peacefully with family by his side on January 19, 2014 at the age of 73. Much loved husband to the late Mary Elizabeth Eaton, Ken is survived by loving daughter Vanessa Eaton-Acken, son-in-law Stephen Acken and grandchildren Samantha and James Acken. He was a brother to Stuart Eaton, brother-in-law to Trevor and Cathy Evans and a special uncle to many. Ken's friends were his family and his family were his friends.
